    Good morning (my time) all.
    I need to build a simple access database (access 2010) I looked at the ready made templates and they don't quite meet my needs as you would expect, some however I have found some form/table that I can use like customer details and others.
    In order for me to cheat a little can i pick the various tables and forms already made in other templates and import them into my database? or would i be wasting my time and just build from scratch?

    Thanks

    Yes you can import any part or all of a database.
    Click on the main menu "External Data" of Access (having created a blank database) and select Access, browse to the database, select and click "Open" and then "Ok".
    Select the items that you want to import and then click on "Ok".
    If you want Access to remember what you have imported select that option.

    Once imported you may have to re-establish the Table Relationships.
